Same powertrain specification for the convertible

An open top convertible version of the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be making its world debut on March 5 at the Geneva Motor Show.

"Every Corvette is designed at the outset as an open car," said Tadge Juechter, Corvette chief engineer. "The new Stingray is no different, with the coupe and convertible designed to excel in any situation – be it your daily commute, a drive across the continent, or charging through twisting backroads."

The Corvette Stingray convertible will deliver the same balance of technology, design, and performance introduced on the coupe version.

"It's fitting to introduce the new Stingray convertible on the global stage at Geneva, because Corvette is the face of Chevrolet the world over," said Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac Europe. "It is an icon that has long been recognized and admired even in countries where it's never officially been offered."
